Episode 332: On the Road: Carmel by the Sea, CA 2012


DESCRIPTION: The coastline of California, all the way from San Luis Obispo to Carmel, is dotted with stretches of beach and landscape that would take your breath away. Cayucos, Cambria, San Simeon, Ragged Point, Lucia and Big Sur, all stand out like glittering supernovas on the way up the California Coast.

My journey will take me up historic Highway 1 on a trip to release my inner wanderlust and recharge my internal battery.

You will be taking the journey with me and we will top, torch and toss back together as we take in the sights and sounds of this rolling herf. Our stops will include the quaint city of Carmel as I first stay at the Pine Inn Hotel, and then on to Carmel Valley Ranch.

Of course, we will have our share of cigars as I load up the Stogie Fresh travel humidors and visit the local shops. All this and more as you board the Stogie Fresh luxury train and head north up the California Coast.
